Nearly-Blind Rescue Dog Gets Contact Lenses

One New York couple will do absolutely anything for their four-legged companions, so when one of their elderly rescue dogs was struggling to see, they didn’t rest until they found a way to help her.
“They are our family and we have made a promise to them to give them the best life we can,” said Mariesa Hughes. So when she and husband Chris noticed their elderly pit bull named Gremlin, who they rescued from a life of dog fighting at four years old and has since battled cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, and a blood disease, was struggling with her vision and developing cataracts, they were ready to do anything to help her.

Gremlin underwent surgery but developed dangerous pressure in her right eye, which caused blindness in the eye and had to get an injection to deaden the eye to ease the pain. Unfortunately, Gremlin’s eyesight still wasn’t great and because she was farsighted, she’d often get frightened by things close to her that she couldn’t see and started ..

An innocent baby goat was subject to extreme animal cruelty when an inexperienced veterinarian burned its horn buds off.
Leanne Lauricella, the founder of Goats of Anarchy, a group that rescues and rehabilitates goats with special needs explained to The Dodo, “I was so angry and upset. It’s just a sweet little innocent baby. How could they think of doing anything besides kissing that head?”

The goat who was only a week and a half old when Lauricella found him was born with big problems. Lawson (whom Lauricella named after a supporter’s son) was born without the middle section of his back legs, and he would need to have his legs amputated.

Dog Chained To Wall For Its Entire Life Is Finally Free

As a woman was driving along the highway in Miguel County, New Mexico, she spotted a dog in chains.
According to The Dodo, it was apparent the dog had been chained for a long time because the fur around the dog’s neck was stained black from where the chain had rubbed against it.

It wasn’t a lightweight chain either- rather it was made of heavy, thick-lined metal, and was wrapped around the dog’s neck with a heavy padlock.

The woman not only spotted this dog, later named Violet, but also five other dogs on the same property, according to Angela Stell, founder, and director of NMDOG, an organization that rescues chained dogs. Violet was about 2-years-old when she was found in December 2016, and it’s likely she was chained up her entire life.
